Aw c'mon, you didn't really miss me, did you? You did? That's so sweet. Sorry for not sharing my month of navel-gazing with you. It's been renovation season around here, and I'm sure you wouldn't have wanted to read my lament about having the taste of drywall dust in my mouth and boxes of florring blocking access to the DVD cabinet.
The house, it seems, is much like one of those magical tents that's written about in Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire. You know, it looks like this teeny little thing you pull out of your backpack but once through the door there seems to be exactly as much space as is needed? That's where we live. The house is not big, but somehow, it's always big enough.
In addition to neglecting my blog, I've also been neglecting the yard. There was a story in the paper the other day about backyards with noxious weeds, and I examined it very carefully to see if the complainants lived anywhere near me. They don't, but still...I must take steps, and soon.
Summer vacation was 45 minutes old when the youngest began to express her boredom. That's a new record.
And in two weeks, my Disney Girl will be done her summer placement there. The pace at which time has passed is mind-boggling. But I'm so looking forward to having her home!
That's all for now - office cleaning and paint touching-up to be done. But it's good to be back!
